If to heaven's heights I fly
You are still beside me,
Or in death's dark shadows lie,
You will stay close by me.
If I flee on morning wings
Far across the grey sea,
Even there your hand will lead,
Your right hand will guide me.
My friend Kerrie has some lovely uplifting and inspirational blogs. She has sung professionally, and we were talking about hymns the other day. Specifically, "I'll Fly Away", which Phil has played at funerals. That song reminds me of the lesser known "If I Flee On Morning Wings" by Fernando Ortega. Kerrie had not heard of this song, and I told her I would do a post on it this week. The words are above. It is just a beautiful ballad based on Psalm 139. I was hoping to post a video of it for you to hear, but YouTube only had one, and it was not an acceptable quality for me to post. However, you can go there and find it if you want. In fact, you can go anywhere, and He will still find you.
"Where can I go from your spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast." Psalm 139
